Care operator distributes token of thanks to care workers at Christmas


Runwood Homes teams, across 75 care homes in England and Northern Ireland, have been given, by Directors, a token of thanks for their continued hard work and dedication throughout the pandemic.

Each employee has received an online shopping gift voucher to treat themselves to something they’d really like or need, after doing such an incredible job this year in continuing to treat others so admirably, and remaining courageous and resilient during these unprecedented times. 

The e-gift card is available to spend online across 30 popular brands that include online shops, high street favourites, delivery services and more, meaning that Runwood’s care teams don’t need to step outdoors to be able to enjoy their gift.

The gesture has been well received by all, and the senior management team at Runwood Homes are so grateful for their fantastic staff team and acknowledge the challenging times that care workers are still facing.  Runwood Homes strives to continuously to ensure that staff feel very much valued in their critical work in caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

The company, which employs over 5,000 care and support staff, has also recently launched a new Employee Assistance Programme with Health Assured and the My Healthy Advantage, to support staff and their immediate family members through any issues they may face.

This extra support and guidance tool is completely confidential and the app includes; logging health and wellbeing, a live chat feature to seek advice, and set and track goals, articles inspiring the feeling of wellbeing, and much more – completely personalised. This employee assistance programme also gives employees access to helpful resources, a professional advice team, wellness courses and therapy sessions.

Runwood Homes would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
